Scouting Report

5-foot-8, 140-pound SH impressed from the right side of the plate (natural side) getting the barrel on plane and keeping it in the zone to produce consistent hard line drive contact. Left-handed swing is not as fluid but has progressed some with occasional line drive contact, flashed his speed getting down the line quickly. Athletic catcher with efficient transfer and footwork behind the plate, average arm strength with accurate throws to the bag, could provide versatility to a college roster with ability to play multiple positions.

UPDATE April 2017: Millhollan impressed as Ballard participated in the PBR Kentucky/Tennessee Challenge and Super Prep Series. In a span of 5 games, we saw him throw out several base stealers with quick feet and a quick release with accurate throws on the bag. He uses his athleticism well behind the plate with good lateral blocking ability. Offensively, Millhollan’s swing from the left side has shown big improvement, and he even showed some pop from that side of the plate in hitting a grand slam home run. As mentioned above, he could provide real versatility to a college roster with his ability to switch-hit and play multiple positions.
